Robin van Persie advises Manchester United on Paul Pogba’s position

Former Arsenal and Manchester United star Robin van Persie has said that the Red Devils should play Paul Pogba in the ideal position in order to get the best out of him.

Speaking to Optus Sport, Van Persie said that Solskjaer needs to set a permanent position for Pogba and the number 8 role suits him better than operating as the defensive midfielder, he told: “For him, the coach, for us, for everyone, it’s just important to choose a position.

So, he still has his freedom, he’s not judged then on 20-plus goals a season, if he scores 10-plus goals, makes assists, everyone will look differently at him then, but it needs to be clear for everyone.”
